Wonderful! Some flavors I have never seen before. I had bay leaf and white chocolate and it was very good. I also tasted my husband’s roasted pumpkin seed and avocado and it was wonderful too. There are a lot of “normal” flavors too. Many flavors to choose from to delight the regular and the adventurous.

Lovely ice cream and an opportunity to try some unusual flavours. Staff will let you try a sample before you buy if you're unsure.

the gelato here was excellent, however the prices were also steep and the scoops a little small. Nevertheless it definately beats mr whippy any day!

I admit to being a regular visitor to Penguino's. The gelato is excellent, creamy, and there are numerous flavors to choose from. The flavors do change over the season you there are always varied tempting tastes to try. Do not be afraid to ask for sample tastes if you are unsure of what flavor or flavor to have. You can try as many as you wish and you might find that you can't walk away with just a single scoop. The service is always friendly and if you are having trouble deciding on a flavor feel free to ask for advice. You will surely find a flavor or two you cannot resist. You might even be surprised by a savory gelato as well.

Penguino gelato has won several awards, and once you visit you will understand why.

Highly recommend.

Can be busy on a sunny summer weekend day, but well worth a few minutes wait.
